The Chemistry of Antihypertensive Agents

  • E. Schlittler


In accordance with the wishes of the Editor, a chapter on the chemistry of antihypertensive agents precedes the pharmacological chapters. If the author has not succeeded in giving all chemical structures for antihypertensive agents mentioned in subsequent contributions, his only consolation for this failure is the fact that this “Handbuch” is concerned with activity of drugs and not with their chemistry. It is not the chemistry but the biological activity which counts in this field of research.
